    Running - kinda starting again from scratch

    so last year i started the year really well, did he race for life and found it really easy so started training for the 10k and then lost motivation, did the 10k but was a dreadful time, and this year my main goal is to get running again and stick with it, my goal is to complete a half marathon by the end of 2014. ive downloaded run keeper to my phone and going to aim for 1 hr of running 3 times a week to get started and increase that every 6 weeks or so.

    so this is my thread to keep track of my progress and hopefully talk to some others in the same boat :-)

    Hi - I'm not a big runner but I've done a 10k the last 2 years, not great times either!! I'm planning a triathlon this year, so still need to keep my running up! Think I'll look for the run keeper app.

    Good luck

    Hi. I'm pretty much starting again from scratch too. Going down my local Sweatshop for their beginners course on Thursday and my goal is to run a marathon. Do you have a local Sweatshop near you? They're very good for supporting beginners.

    Hi Clare

    You'll get there. Just don't push it. U might find that running 3 times a week for an hour is a lot and 'samey' u cd vary. There's a good app called 26.2 and it will give u a half marathon plan which will vary ur distances. Is there a running club u cd join. My club (haven't been for ages) has all levels and its a ladies only one.

    I'm in same boat as you. Starting from scratch. Have run marathons, halfs n done Tri s but have lost ALL fitness and replaced with fatness! Back to square one.

    I can do it, you can do it!

    Hi Clare

    Here to subscribe to your thread. I recently graduated the Couch to 5k plan and am thinking about entering for a 10k some time during the first half of this year. It would be my first ever race and I wouldn't have dreamed of even thinking about that six months ago but feel it is do-able now as I am slowly increasing my distances and am up to 4 mile sessions. I am very slow at the moment and am looking at ways of building stamina and speed so that I could complete a 10k with a respectable beginner's time.

    I am very interested to see how your training plan goes.

    You could always give running club a try & see how you get on. I've never done it but have friends who have, mostly from a motivational point of view like doing a class at the gym.

    Good luck next week & best wishes to your son
